I am an elementary school teacher and presently teach Kindergarten. I made my first quilt at the age of 10. It was a nine patch quilt of double knit! I have made several baby quilts here and there and have recently become obsessed with the art of quilting. I can say, "I have been quilt bitten."
How many quilts have you made?
More than 30
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
How long have you been a quilter?
Off and on since the age of 10
What is your favorite quilting technique?
Presently machine quilting . . . getting ready to do some fabric painting and love working with squares and COTTON material presently!!!
Why do you quilt?
I just love the beauty of one piece from the start and seeing the end results.
The fabrics are sponge painted. I use procian dyes and usually have a pallet of around 30-60 colors working. I sponge the dyes onto fabric, put them in a plastic bag to cure and then wash out. There are no repeats. What I'm aiming for is a landscape with lights, shadows, and a world all its own.
